So what city, state or other do you refuse to speed? And why?

All of the citation fees should be distributed to every driver in the state in equal portions (as a discount on registration fees and, if that does not offset the registration fees, as a direct deposit) so that no state entity profits from it.

Eastham, Cape Cod, Mass - local cops. All they do is traffic. They are notorious. They made me a "habitual traffic offender" during the late 80's and during my youth (big box Escort days). They are just as bad still today. News Center 5 did a story a few years back and Eastham was rated the most ticketed place in Mass. It's all about the $$$. Even lowered the speed limits on the highway to get more unsuspecting tourists and in a hurry locals about 15 years ago.

There's one way to get this through, regardless of what politicians think: collect signatures, and put it on the ballot as a referendum.

Down in FL, anyone who drives across the state knows Waldo and Starke FL are HUGE hot spots for speed traps and known corrupt cops.

I never speed on back roads. I never speed with Kids in the cars. I never speed in thickly settled areas.

Highways are fun. I watch it along the Seacoast area of my state, I hate the NY truway and I will drive around VA if I ever have to travel south. LOL

Thickly settled/residential areas, completely agree on.

With kids in the car, if you're not speeding around here you're MORE likely to get into an accident. Most major highways run +15-20 (if they're not moving 5mph...), So going with the flow is definitely the safest option.

As for back roads... Well, back roads tend to be the fun ones. Obviously don't treat it like a racetrack and be mindful of blind corners, cyclists, etc.(and for Pete's sake don't cross the double yellow), but yeah, I'm opening the taps up a bit.

I drive slow in and near 1) ACTIVE work zones where there are people working not just a construction site 2) near a school 3) near a park that has a lot of kids crossing the street 4) when I am in a built up area 5) Commonwealth of Virginia over 80 mph even in a 70 mph zone is a criminal offence

On fast stretches of 2 lane fwy , each direction (ie I5 SF to LA) I now slow to psl +10-15 when passing semi trucks. The semi drivers often text and drift into lanes - or are just a holes pulling out in front of you. Not all of them, just a few.
